Episode 153 - TIMIO
In Episode 153 I got to talk with Basile Fattal from the successful Kickstarter campaign, TIMIO. TIMIO is an educational audio and music player that uses magnetic discs to unlock a library of curated content, from nursery rhymes and lullabies to fairy tales and vocabulary, all in 5 different languages: ENGLISH, SPANISH, FRENCH, GERMAN and DUTCH.
TIMIO consists of two parts: the Portable Digital Audio Player and the Interactive Content Discs that activate the content on the Digital Audio Player.
Unlike other kids' audio players on the market, TIMIO is interactive.
Not only does it allow children to select the content they’d like to play, but with the vocabulary discs, TIMIO will also quiz the child to find an item. Children are more engaged and this interactivity reinforces the learning process.
